UPDATE: Our winners are Ezequiel Gutierrez and Charmaine George. Congratulations!
ORIGINAL POST: Here’s a premium Beehive giveaway for you: I have TWO pairs of tickets to give away to this weekend’s production of Fresno Grand Opera’s “Carmen.”
From the opera:
Bizet’s romantic thriller about a soldier’s ill-fated obsession with the ultimate femme fatale is arguably the world’s most popular opera. Featuring brilliant orchestration, an unrivaled procession of hit tunes, and a stage full of gypsies, smugglers and toreadors, Carmen packs all the sizzle of Spanish culture into an irresistible theatrical event.
One pair of tickets is for opening night, which is 8 p.m. Friday at the Saroyan Theatre. The other pair is for the Sunday matinee, which is 2 p.m. Jan. 29. These are very nice seats that go for $89.50 each.
To enter, leave a comment on this post telling us whether you’d like to attend the Friday performance, the Sunday performance, or either. These are paper tickets, so you’ll need to be able to come down to The Bee’s front lobby by 5 p.m. Friday to pick them up.
Deadline is 10 a.m. Wednesday.
I’ll notify the winner via e-mail — so please leave a real e-mail address and please check it. Duplicate entries are not allowed. I reserve the right to pick another winner if you haven’t responded to a notification email in a timely manner. You’re ineligible if you’ve won anything from the Beehive in the past 30 days.
